Management of both acute and chronic neurologic diseases can be challenging for both the patient and the health care provider. Many neurologic disorders involve progressive deterioration in physical and mental capabilities, which can be devastating to the patient and the patient’s family. In many respects, neurotherapeutics represent the largest as-yet untapped market in medicine.
